In this splendid book, [Flores] combines his camera lens and an imaginative personal narrative to create a canyonlands encounter which will surprise, enlighten, and educate us to the long neglected Llano Estacado (Staked Plain) of West Texas....More In this splendid book, [Flores] combines his camera lens and an imaginative personal narrative to create a canyonlands encounter which will surprise, enlighten, and educate us to the long neglected Llano Estacado (Staked Plain) of West Texas.... You cannot help but be swept along with the magic of this country and Flores longing for not only its preservation, but, indeed, its restoration.—New Mexico Historical ReviewCaprock Canyonlands is a gripping book. I recommend it without reservation. Its a book we need to read if we are to help save the beauty of the southern Plains.... This book is not only going to have a regional audience- it will create a much needed national debate on the preservation of the Southwest landscapes which we all love and hold dear.—Great Plains QuarterlyCaprock Canyonlands is Dan Flores personal narrative about the canyons and badlands of the southern High Plains, which extend from eastern New Mexico and western Oklahoma south through Texas to the Concho River. Describing a series of journeys into the canyonlands, he evokes the literally millions of years that shaped the region. This stereoscopic vision, encompassing geology, mythology, botany, art, history, literature, and other studies, establishes Flores place among Americas most skilled nature writers.
